Will Pak Lah Continue After March, 2009? – LIVE POLL!!

Posted: December 20, 2008 in Anwar Ibrahim, Dr Mahathir, Malaysia, Malaysia Today, malaysiakini, Malaysian Politics, Najib Tun Razak, Sarawak, UMNO

PM Badawi says he is fulfilling his promise of reform before he leaves office in end March. With the political clock ticking away, will the incoming leader, his deputy Najib Tun Razak, ever be able to take over in March as the new prime minister? 

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said it was not impossible Datuk Abdullah Badawi may not step down as the Prime Minister next March, when Datuk Seri Najib Razak takes over the Umno party leadership. There is talk that even if Najib becomes Umno president, he may not be the Prime Minister. Could this happen? Could the Umno President after March 2009 not be The Prime Minister of Malaysia?

If Pak Lah is still interested to continue serving as Prime Minister after end March 2009, that is his right as he is the legitimate Prime Minister and he got his Letter of Appointment from The Agung, and thus, he can stay until the end of his term and complete all the unfinished works he set out to do and I’m sure most Malaysians will support this move.

In light of the tough times politically for UMNO and The BN and all the allegations of purported scandals involving Najib and with the upcoming Sarawak State Elections, what are you thoughts about Pak Lah staying on even after March 2009? Take our poll and share your thought in the comment section of this thread.

    According to your polls so far, majority are saying that PM may not go after march. This is good for Malaysia and I hope this is the real situation after march. PM should just complete his term of office till the next election. No one should force him out or elbow him out of power.

    Pak Lah should just hold on till the next election. We gave him the mandate for 5 years from 2008 and he must honour that.
